Outpatient Clinic Services:
Mental Health Resources, Inc. is a non-profit, Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) that is identified as an Adult Core Service Agency (CSA). A Core Service Agency is intended to identify and provide wrap-around services to target populations. The target populations for the Adult CSA’s include individuals who have a Severe Psychiatric Mental Illness(SPMI), individuals who have both mental health and substance issues (co-occurring disorders (COD)), and individuals with Chronic Substance Dependence (CSD) issues. There are additional special populations that include the homeless and DD/MI populations as well as priority populations that include individuals coming out of hospitals and the criminal justice system.
Although the populations listed above are considered the highest priority, any individual or family may request and receive all services that will promote recovery/resiliency and an overall healthier lifestyle. As part of a holistic approach, MHR believes that there is a direct relationship between a person’s behavioral health and their primary care needs. Every effort is made to integrate these two aspects of care in the hope of achieving the maximum health benefit for each individual requesting service. The following services are offered through Mental Health Resources, Inc.:
Individual counseling may include mental health issues, substance abuse/dependence issues, or individuals who have co-occurring disorders. Counseling is provided on an out-patient basis. Any individual above the age of 14 may request counseling services and have the full benefit of confidentiality.
Family counseling is offered and is considered to be a key component in the recovery/resiliency process. Family counseling is also offered for mental health issues, substance abuse/dependence issues and co-occurring issues. Services are offered on an out-patient basis.
Mental Health Resources, Inc., offers substance abuse/recovery groups and education groups to support individuals with Severe Psychiatric Mental Illness (SPMI). Additionally, MHR has community groups that it supports that include Al-Anon and Double Trouble groups. If you would like information on these groups, please contact your therapist or the Center Director in each office.
Mental Health Resources, Inc. offers psychiatric services in conjunction with the therapeutic process to individuals who may benefit from medication therapy. MHR does not currently offer “stand alone” psychiatric services as our philosophy believes in the relationship between mental health, medications, and the therapeutic process to facilitate the best possible outcome. Referrals for medication evaluations are made following the clinical intake process for individuals who meet service eligibility requirements.
Comprehensive Community Support Services (CCSS) (Adults and Children/adolescents):
CCSS is a community based service provided to the target populations that meet the CSA criteria. The service is designed to help individuals develop skills and link individuals to natural supports within the community to increase independence and embrace recovery/resiliency principles. The service is designed to only be in effect until learning has taken place or supports have been developed; it is not a case management service. Eligible individuals must have a mental health diagnosis that meets the Serious Mental Illness (SMI) definition for adults and a Severe Emotional Disturbance for children and adolescents (SED). The purpose of CCSS is to surround individual/families with the services and resources necessary to promote recovery, rehabilitation and resiliency. Community support activities address goals specifically in the following areas: independent living, learning, working, socializing, and recreation. Services are primarily face-to-face and in community locations.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (PSR):
PSR is an out-patient, day treatment program available to individuals with a diagnosis that meets the Severe Psychiatric Mental Illness (SPMI) criteria. The purpose of the program is to help individuals develop daily independent living skills necessary to maintain living in the community. The program utilizes the classroom model approach and not only provides an educational basis, but incorporates a social component vital for building support systems. The program is designed to help an individual to capitalize on personal strengths, to develop coping strategies and skills to deal with deficits, and to develop a supportive environment in which to function as independently as possible.
Supported Employment Program:
The supported employment program focuses largely on individuals that are currently on disability but is open to all MHR clients that meet the program eligibility criteria. The focus of the program is to work on job development, job skills training, interviewing techniques, resume building, and job placement. Additionally, the program also provides benefits counseling and coordination with the Social security office and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) for those who are on SSI or SSDI. The program does not help people obtain their disability. The goal of the Supported Employment program is to help place individuals either in part-time employment or long-term full time employment positions. This service is currently only available in Curry and Roosevelt counties. Supported employment provides on the job supports in an intergraded work setting with ongoing support services for individuals in need of intensive supported employment services in order to perform work.
MHR currently provides 24/7 crisis coverage through a toll free 1-800 number. The intention of this service is to help individual’s access services in a quick, efficient manner and to provide avenues for access on weekends or after hours. This service is also able to function as a resource for individuals who may be unsure of services that are available in the treatment area or in the state as a whole.
Intensive Outpatient Substance Treatment (IOP):
Currently this service is offered only in Curry County in the MHR Clovis office. An Intensive Outpatient Program provides a time-limited, multi-faceted approach to treatment service for individuals who require structure and support to achieve and sustain recovery. IOP must target specific behaviors with individualized behavioral interventions. Treatment services address substance use disorders as well as co-occurring mental health disorders when indicated.
MHR offers nursing services in Curry and Roosevelt counties at both the Clovis and Portales clinics. The service is designed to enhance the psychiatric and clinical services and help to coordinate the medical needs of the client with primary care.
Juvenile Community Corrections Program (JCC):
The JCC program targets adjudicated teens that have been identified through the court system to help prevent further involvement in the criminal justice system. The program is designed to work with juveniles and their families, probation officers, school systems, and employers to provide support, accountability, and coordination of care to prevent short or long term out of home placements.
Behavior Management Services (BMS):
Behavior management services are provided to children and adolescents who need behavioral management intervention to avoid inpatient hospitalization, residential treatment, and separation from their families or who require continued intensive treatment following hospitalization or as a transition to avoid return to a more restrictive environment. BMS include the development of a behavior management plan, implementation of the behavior management plan, assisting caregivers to implement the plan and ongoing monitoring of the behavior management plan. BMS is provided as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment and are not provided as stand-alone services.
Multi-systemic Therapy Services (MST) for juveniles:
Multi-systemic therapy provides an intensive home/family and community-based treatment for individuals who are at risk of out-of-home placement or are returning home from placement and their families. The MST model is evidence-based interventions that target specific behaviors with individualized behavioral interventions. Services include an initial assessment to identify the focus of the MST interventions to be used with the individual and family. Specialized therapeutic and rehabilitative interventions are available to address specific areas of need such as substance abuse, delinquency, violent behaviors, etc. Services are primarily provided in the home but workers also intervene at school and in other community settings.
